Chiefs' Pederson focused on Patriots, not Philly job
KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) Chiefs offensive coordinator Doug Pederson says his interview for the vacant head coaching job in Philadelphia went ''great,'' but he insists he is focused on the New England Patriots.
The Chiefs visit the reigning Super Bowl champions for a playoff game Saturday.
Pederson interviewed for the Philadelphia job Sunday. He started nine games at quarterback for the Eagles in 1999, and began his NFL coaching career under Andy Reid in 2009 as a quality control coach.
Pederson followed Reid to Kansas City in 2013 as his offensive coordinator.
The Eagles have also interviewed Tom Coughlin, Duce Staley, Pat Shurmur and Ben McAdoo. Bears offensive coordinator Adam Gase also interviewed before taking the job in Miami.
